We are Tradespeople, Experts, Advisers & Merchants who succeed by Using & Promoting each other's products and services. This reciprocal relationship allows our members to have a network of business professionals they can rely on to provide the products and services they need to satisfy their business and personal needs, and that can rely on them for the products and services they specialize in. TEAM-UP! is an acronym for Tradespeople, Experts, Advisers and Merchants who Use & Promote each others products and services. Each position on our TEAM represents a unique business specialty. 


We meetup 4 times a month. The format is set so that every TEAM mate in attendance has an opportunity to introduce themselves and their business specialty to the others, and describe the type of customers they are looking for. On a rotating basis, 1 TEAMmate gets a chance to give a more detailed presentation (about 10 minutes) about their business. 

The 1st & 3rd Friday morning of each month we have a TEAM-UP! Networking Breakfast at Albert's Restaurant in the UF Hilton beginning at 7:45am and finishing up around 9am. We call this meetup the "Breakfast Club".

The 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month we have a TEAM-UP! Networking Lunch, choosing a different locally owned restaurant each time, beginning at 11:45 and finishing up around 1pm. We call this meetup "On The Move".

Attendance at all of the Meetups is not required, but definitely recommended if you want to make sure you meet everyone. We are looking for new TEAM-UP! members that can attend at least 2 meetups a month.


A small membership fee is paid by each TEAM-UP! member to cover group expenses. The first 30 days is a free trial period in which we hope to get to know you and allow you to learn about us by attending some of our meetups. Until we get 30 members, the monthly fee is $15. You can earn 2 more free months by paying $150 for a year. Once we have we have 30 members, the monthly fee is $25 or $250 for a year, until we have 50 members. Once we have we have 50 members, the monthly fee is $50 or $500 for a year. Member fees are fixed for the life of your membership, so whatever the fee is when you join is what your fee will be as long as you are a TEAM-UP! member.


There are no other requirements. No boards or committees. No books to read or tapes to listen to. No reporting back to the group on referrals given or business done. Although it's always nice to thank TEAM mates in public for referrals and business given or received. Just networking, referring, and getting referrals and business from your TEAM.


We are seeking new TEAM-UP! members to fill our open positions. Our TEAM-UP! Roster is shown below. Open Positions are notated BELOW THE ROSTER with a *. If you (or someone you know) would like to fill an open position, please let us know by joining our Meetup group. There's no contract or minimum sign-up term and first 30 days is free, so give us a shot.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
